Huntsville, Ala. (April 10, 2013) – Students and staff at Alabama A&M University will plant trees donated by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota Wednesday, April 10, following an 11 a.m. program in Clyde Foster Auditorium on the AAMU
campus. The planting is in celebration of the University's commitment to tree care and conservation, and its quest for Tree Campus USA recognition.
Wednesday’s volunteer activity is one of a series of hands-on tree planting events sponsored by the Foundation and Toyota during the spring of 2013.
The event is also supported by Alpha Kappa Alpha, the oldest Greek-lettered organization established by African-American, college-educated women, as part of a broader campaign to recruit and train environmental leaders. Companion events include tree plantings at the University of Florida and Rutgers University.
Some 30 trees are scheduled to be planted at Legacy Lake, across from the Morrison Building. The public is invited.
